The Watering Hole

Now and then I need some inspiration. No ideas were coming to me today. None. Zip. Nada. Nothing.

Not even a weird idea like seeing if I can capture the splash of a tire in a puddle as a car zips down the street at night with my strobe set to freeze gyser of water drops flying toward some poor bystander in his/her fancy go to dinner clothes waiting out on the sidewalk to be seated at their table.

Ok, I thought of that one. I just couldn't see getting out there to do it today.

So, what to shoot? I took a sneak peek at other sites today. I've been trying to post mine before I look to see what my buddies have done. When I saw Tim's I knew I wanted to mess around with a reflective surface (thanks Tim!). I'm saving lockers for another day...

Shot with a 50mm lens at f11, 1/250th, iso 100 with a single 430EX bounced off some foam core board.


  1. Nice idea - I am struggling at the moment as well. It is great to be able to look to others for ideas and inspiration.

  2. Nicely done Eric,
    Lockers tomorrow? LOL
    how big is that entire surface showing? 1 foot x 1 foot?

  3. You got it. It's an 12x16 photo frame with black paper behind the glass.

  4. Hey cool shot! I love the little animals! Is this just clear glass on paper?
